A-Rod had a lot of knowledge to drop on these college graduates.
Graduating from college can be the most exciting and terrifying time of your life. On one hand, you get to set off one your own and see the “real world.” On the other hand, you are probably dealing with some crippling student loan debt and have no idea what you are doing (or where you are going). Don’t worry about it. We all have to figure this stuff out sooner or later. The sooner you realize that life is full of ups, downs, failures, and successes, the sooner you will start to live life to the fullest. The graduating class of the University of Miami got a special lesson to prepare them for the future thanks the baseball star Alex Rodriguez.
“Truth is that you have something that I don’t,” Rodriguez told the graduates. “You have the experience of going to college as a young adult and a degree from a premier institution.”
After praising the graduates on making it through the university and securing their education, he let them know the one source of education that should never be overlooked: mom. The baseball legend admitted that when he felt like quitting, his mother always pushed him to keep going. Rodriguez was adamant about telling the graduates to keep going no matter what. He spoke about his own shortcomings as an athlete and the importance of learning to pick yourself up and keep going.
Congratulations to all the new college graduates. Now get out there and crush it.
